Choosing a really special gift for a big occasion just got a little easier! I sell lots of lovely family trees to couples celebrating their ruby, diamond and gold anniversaries. They’re such a thoughtful idea to give – a beautiful piece of calligraphy art, made entirely by hand, and including all of the family.
My family trees come framed and ready-to-frame, depending on your budget. Choose from different designs to suit your style, and your pocket!
The most popular gift for a diamond wedding anniversary (60 years)
In collaboration with Welsh artist Amy Swann, my ‘cheerful family tree’ makes a lovely gift for a diamond anniversary.
It’s also very popular as a 70th or 80th birthday gift and for Grandmas and Grandads!
The style is traditional and painterly with a playful colour palette.
This family tree is a lovely gift to send to grandparents or to couples who’ve had 60 years together. Often these couples will have nurtured a large family around them, with two or more generations following in their footsteps.
(This has also made a very special gift for a few customers who have purchased the family tree for a relative with dementia. What better way to visualise a growing family than to see their names all together on a beautiful tree?)
The best gift for a gold wedding anniversary (50 years)
Our gold foil family tree is perfect for a couple celebrating 50 years together.
The gold foil shines in the light, and names are written in a soft metallic gold ink, which makes this family tree perfect for a gold wedding anniversary gift!
This family tree is a lovely way to remember everyone, and to show a special couple they’re loved by so many people!
With space for up to 20 names, it has an informal layout so you can add all the members of their family around the branches of the tree. It’s a more modern design than our other family trees, and will suit any contemporary or rustic home.
This is a really special print to hang on a wall, so that every time you walk past it, you’re reminded of all the special people in your life.
Our most popular gift for a ruby wedding anniversary (40 years)
After 40 years together, what lovelier way to celebrate than a gift from ALL the family?
Our newest family tree has space for up to 50 names in a relaxed format but with a diagram to show an extended family. It’s a lovely gesture and a perfect anniversary gift if you’re all clubbing together.
The design is joyful with lots of colour, but subtle and pretty – the family tree won’t overpower their decor, but provides a soft background where all of your family names can be included.
Special wedding anniversary gifts – your problems solved!
If your family tree is too large for our standard designs, why not purchase a traditional family tree in calligraphy? This can include dates and places of birth and of passing, and is perfect for a couple who have researched their ancestry.
This family tree can be up to 100 names – but don’t let that stop you getting in touch if you have even more names and generations to add!
If a family tree isn’t quite right for the couple you’re buying for, how about something completely different?
Commemorating a wedding anniversary could mean remembering something from the day: having a special photograph reframed or printed on canvas perhaps.
For a more unique anniversary gift, how about some first dance song lyrics in calligraphy?
Choose from any song and I’ll do the rest – nipping out all but one chorus to make your song lyrics a reasonable size, scribing them by hand in a beautiful and striking style, and even adding a dedication and note of the wedding or anniversary date to personalise your gift, if you like!
